Clean TeQ Water Awarded new Contract for EVAPX® technology to reduce carbon footprint of agricultural by-product processing facility
23 September 2021
Clean TeQ Water is pleased to announce the award of a significant contract to design, procure, and deliver an EVAPX® system to treat wastewater and recover clean water at an agricultural by-product processing facility located in New South Wales, Australia. The plant is scheduled to become operational in CY Q2 2022 following completion of construction is (30 weeks after contract signing). The contract counterparty is the Loris H Hassall Pty Ltd.
Clean TeQ Water’s EVAPX® process evaporates the water from a high concentrate dirty wastewater, reducing the overall wastewater volume and allowing the recovered water to be re-used in a beneficial way. The concentrated salt stream produced by EVAPX® will be reused by the customer on site, reducing the amount of salt which needs to be purchased.
The EVAPX® solution was chosen for its ability to evaporate the water using much less energy than alternative solutions (e.g. natural gas boiler systems), thereby substantially reducing the carbon footprint of the products produced especially due to the availability of solar power. The EVAPX® technology is an efficient, low energy method to treat highly concentrated wastewaters and brines to achieve minimal liquid discharge (MLD) or zero liquid discharge (ZLD).
